A. Definitions

Summary: We use these basic terms throughout the agreement, and they have specific meanings. You should know what we mean when we use each of the terms. There's not going to be a test on it, but it's still useful information.

  1. The "Agreement" refers, collectively, to all the terms, conditions, notices contained or referenced in this document (the "Terms of Service" or the "Terms") and all other operating rules, policies (including the privacy policy) and procedures that we may publish from time to time on the Website.

  2. The "Service" refers to all applications, software, products, websites and services provided by Resurface Labs.

  3. The "Website" refers to Resurface Labs' website located at resurface.io, and all content provided through the Website.

  4. "Self-Hosted Database" refers to a private database that is operated by a customer, without hosting by Resurface Labs. These databases can run on physical hardware provided by the customer, or on virtual machines in the cloud.

  5. "Hosted Database" refers to a private isolated database, managed by Resurface Labs at the request of a specific customer.

  6. "The User," "You," and "Your" refer to the individual person, company, or organization that has visited or is using the Website or Service or a Hosted Database. A User must be at least 13 years of age.

  7. "Resurface Labs," "We," and "Us" refer to Resurface Labs Inc., as well as our affiliates, directors, subsidiaries, contractors, licensors, officers, agents, and employees.

  8. "Content" refers to data and materials featured or displayed through the Service, including without limitation text, data, articles, images, photographs, graphics, software, applications, designs, features, and other materials that are available on the Website or otherwise available through the Service. "User-Generated Content" is Content, written or otherwise, created or uploaded by our Users. "Your Content" is Content that you create or own, including any usage data uploaded by a logging library to our Service.

B. Use of our Service

1. Website

Summary: We're happy to have you visit our website, and to share links to our content on your own websites or on social media. But please respect our copyright in doing so.

You may not duplicate, copy, or reuse any portion of the HTML/CSS, Javascript, or visual design elements used by our Website without express written permission from Resurface Labs. All content on our Website is copyrighted by Resurface Labs.

2. Self-hosted databases

Summary: You agree to the terms of our commercial license, which allows you to install and use our software, but not to alter or redistribute it.

We do not require that you provide personally identifying information to use free versions of our database. We do require personally identifying information (including email address and credit card number) to use paid versions of our database.

All self-hosted installations must adhere to the terms of our commercial license, which limits how our software may be distributed and deployed. You may not modify our software, nor include our software in other products without written permission from Resurface Labs.

How your usage data is handled and protected is fully described by ourprivacy policy. Questions or requests regarding handling of personally identifying information should be submitted by email to our Data Protection Officer. (dpo@resurface.io)

3. Hosted databases

Summary: All Hosted Databases are isolated to a specific customer, and Resurface cannot access your data nor share your data with anyone. All data stored in a Hosted Database remains under first-party control. You alone are responsible for data logged to your Hosted Database.

We require personally identifying information (including email address and credit card number) to use a hosted database. This is necessary to identify users and to process payment for Hosted Databases.

All Hosted Databases are backed by dedicated infrastructure, so that all databases remain isolated from each other. Usage data logged by you to a Hosted Database will not be shared with our staff or any third parties. How your usage data is handled and protected is fully described by ourprivacy policy. Section C of these Terms grants limited rights to Resurface Labs to collect and process data that you provide to your Hosted Database, but not to share your data with anyone.

Questions or requests regarding handling of personally identifying information should be submitted by email to our Data Protection Officer. (dpo@resurface.io)

C. User-generated content

Summary: You own usage data and all other content you provide, but you allow us certain rights to it, so that we can parse, process and visualize your data. You still have control over your data, and responsibility for it, and the rights you grant us are limited to those we need to provide the features of our Service.

  1. Responsibility for user-generated content You will log User-Generated Content (in the form of usage data) while using the Service. You are solely responsible for the content of, and for any harm resulting from, any User-Generated Content that you upload, link to or otherwise make available via the Service, regardless of the form of that Content. We are not responsible for any public display or misuse of your User-Generated Content.

  2. Ownership of content, right to post, and license grants You retain ownership of and responsibility for Content you create or own ("Your Content"). If you're posting anything you did not create yourself or do not own the rights to, you agree that you are responsible for any Content you post; that you will only submit Content that you have the right to post; and that you will fully comply with any third party licenses relating to Content you post.

Because you retain ownership of and responsibility for Your Content, we need you to grant us (and other users in some cases) certain legal permissions, listed in Sections C.3 — C.5. These license grants apply to Your Content. If you log Content that already comes with a license granting Resurface Labs the permissions we need to run our Service, no additional license is required. You understand that you will not receive any payment for any of the rights granted in Sections C.3 — C.5. The licenses you grant to us will end if you stop using our Service.

  1. License grant to us We need the legal right to do things like host Your Content and render it into useful formats. You grant us and our legal successors the right to store, parse, and display Your Content while you remain an active user. This license does not grant Resurface Labs the right to sell Your Content or otherwise distribute or use it outside of our provision of the Service.

  2. License grant to other users Any User-Generated Content you post to our Service may only be viewed by others if you have intentionally shared your database with those users. When sharing your database with other users, you agree to allow these users to view Your Content, and you are responsible for ensuring that the Content you log is licensed under terms that grant permission to access the Content. This includes providing data to Resurface Labs for technical support.

  3. Moral rights You retain all moral rights to Your Content that you log or submit to any part of the Service, including the rights of integrity and attribution. However, you waive these rights and agree not to assert them against us, to enable us to reasonably exercise the rights granted in Section D.4, but not otherwise.

To the extent this agreement is not enforceable by applicable law, you grant Resurface Labs the rights we need to use Your Content without attribution and to make reasonable adaptations of Your Content as necessary to render the Website and provide the Service.

D. Acceptable use

Summary: While using our Service, you must accept some restrictions on content you can post, your conduct on the Service, and other limitations. In short, be nice.

1. Electronic communication required

For contractual purposes, you (1) consent to receive communications from us in an electronic form or via the Service; and (2) agree that all Terms of Service, agreements, notices, disclosures, and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that those communications would satisfy if they were on paper. This section does not affect your non-waivable rights.

Communications made through email or electronic messaging systems will not constitute legal notice to Resurface Labs or any of its officers, employees, agents or representatives in any situation where notice to Resurface Labs is required by contract or any law or regulation. Legal notice to Resurface Labs must be in writing and delivered by mail to 5323 Deer Creek Court, Boulder, CO.

K. Changes to these terms

Summary: We want our users to be informed of important changes to our terms, but some changes aren't that important — we don't want to bother you every time we fix a typo. So while we may modify this agreement at any time, we will notify users of any changes that affecting your rights.

We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to amend these Terms of Service at any time and will update these Terms of Service in the event of any such amendments.
